The music video for "Rain On Me"
was released just hours after the audio premiered
and in just 5 hours, viewed more than 5 million times on YouTube.

with a lot of their dancers in a futuristic setting.

Gaga is lying on the ground with a dagger stuck in her left leg.
She dances even with the dagger and after a rain of daggers,
she pulled it out afterwards.
According to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rain_on_Me_(Lady_Gaga_and_Ariana_Grande_song))
"Rain on Me" is an "uplifting" dance-pop, disco and house song
that contains elements of French house.

and finding beauty in the pain, heartbreak, and life".

which is then accompanied by a "filter" house bass
and a "thundering" percussion.

The song is catchy and makes you wanna dance.
It's like you're in the 90's partying

This moment was one of the best in MTV history
when Madonna, Missy Elliott, Britney Spears & Christina Aguilera
took the stage by storm to open MTV VMA 2003
with Madonna's "Like A Virgin" and "Hollywood" medley
with a slight of Missy's "Work It".
The performance would create one spectacle
that would never be forgotten for generations to come -
Madonna kissing both Britney and Christina on the lips!
People had much to say about the whole incident:
some loved it, some didn't and worse disgusted.
But if you remember,
the media feasted on Madonna and Britney only
and excluded Christina as if she was not part of the performance.
Just the sad part.
I just didn't know why that happened.
Anyways, watch the video again if you've forgotten
and relive that great moment and enjoy yourself.
You won't forget the track that accompanies the Dancing Pallbearers
